Thanks for your help all. 

I think with everyone's help I have it working, but now I am trying to use a memory based database using :MEMORY: for the database name. I ensured all databases are closed using revOpenDatabases() which returns empty. But now each time I attempt to create the database I get the result "table "array data" already exists. I though closing a memory database deletes it from memory. If not, how do you clear a memory database?
